One of These Things is not Like the Other

The University of Michigan Health Systems and Partnership for a Drug Free America have released a new study warning all us dummies that kids sniffing glue, shoe polish, hair spray or air freshener might be a bad thing.


I believe most parents would come to that conclusion without a scientific study.
The most alarming thing though is the following swill which places marijuana in the same catergory with airplane glue. It reminds me of that little game I used to play in kindergarten where three or four different items were placed in the same group and us 5-year-olds had to try and pick out which one didn't belong.

Can you pick out the item that does not belong in the following statement?

But today children and teens are finding new, inexpensive and more convenient ways to get high by using products – found under the kitchen sink or in the bathroom of their homes – that are just as harmful and potentially deadly as drugs like marijuana, cocaine and heroine. In fact, about 10 to 15 percent of youth have reported using inhalants at some point in their life to get high.
